Last month, Jennifer Shahade spoke to Vanity Fair magazine about the recent Netflix hit The Queen’s Gambit. The chess drama follows a young girl in post-war America who turns out to be an incredible talent at the game.

Shahade is a two-time US Women’s Champion, Women’s Program Director at U.S. Chess, and also a brand ambassador for PokerStars. So we can safely say she understands both games very well. In this interview she delves into the parallels between the two games.

“…in a way, I feel like, sets it apart from all of those other chess content pieces, and makes it into something that could potentially build a bridge between people who play chess as children and people who play chess later in their life. It’s kind of like the poker side of chess. It’s the travel, the glamour, the relationships between the people that you meet on the tour. The individualistic side of it.”
